Google Meet’s new update brings-in two new features that allow Polling and Q&A capabilities

You know how helpful it has been to have video conferencing apps like Google Meet, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Skype in this Coronavirus lockdown. Although we have slowly started coming out of the lockdown, most organizations are still asking their employees to stay at home and work from there. That means, we still need to attend several online meetings, conferences, and more.

Now according to a new announcement posted by Google, the company’s video conferencing app Google Meet will now allow users to experience Polling and Q&A capabilities. “Starting October 8, we’re launching two highly-requested features in Google Meet to help you connect and engage with people on your video calls: Q&A and polls.”

Well, it’s worth knowing that when polling and Q&A features will start rolling out they won’t be coming to G Suite Basic, G Suite for Education, or G Suite for Nonprofits customers. Instead, Google is debuting them to G Suite Essentials, G Suite Business, G Suite Enterprise, and G Suite Enterprise for Education members first. Moreover, it was also known that there is no admin control for this feature and will be available by default for meetings created by customers of eligible G Suite editions.

This new addition to Google’s video conferencing app will allow teachers to make quick decisions using the polling option. Also if a teacher requires taking a quiz type test the Q&A feature will help with a huge benefit of the time. Previously, the platform also introduced a background blur feature and got in new layouts that have made a huge impact.
